Where Does Innovative Thinking Come From?
The 100 People Foundation partnered with Intel to answer that question. We traveled around the world to tell the stories of 4 finalists and chronicle the journey from the birth of an idea all the way to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair 2011 in Los Angeles.
Meet the Students:
Raquel Redshirt won a special award at Intel ISEF for creating a homemade solar oven out of found materials around the Navajo Nation where she lives. Dzarul Dol Malek invented an organic battery out of weeds and brown sugar from his sugarcane farm in rural Malaysia. And Clara Duarte and Emilce Espinoza established a protected nature reserve in northern Argentina.
The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, a program of Society for Science & the Public, is the world's largest pre-college science fair competition. Each year, more than 6 million young scientists from around the world vied to attend and 1,500 were selected as finalists to share ideas, showcase cutting edge ideas and compete for over USD 4 million in awards and scholarships.
